4:00 am
the same we are apparently better than blue. sea people you've never heard of love redacted tonight my president of the world bank so kate was really pretty seriously send us an e-mail. this is art international in the program the smalling austrian voters turned sharp right on a set to elect the world's youngest leader while and him a gratian party to make significant gains to. u.s. increases next year african aid budget to over five billion dollars as somalia reels from its worst ever terrorist attack. and developments in the catalonia long drawn out story now catalonia as president refuses to clarify whether his regions declaring independence from spain instead asking for talks with the prime minister who's threatening to impose direct rule from madrid.
4:01 am
why very good morning for me kevin i just turned eleven in the morning here in moscow this monday first the austrian voters have made a clear shift to the right and they're on course to put the world's youngest leader in office people party leaders sebastian curt's is poised to become chancellor after his center right group secured thirty one percent of the vote while the right wing anti immigrant freedom party is in line to come second with over twenty seven percent its leader christian strachan seemed as jubilant as the winner at times as the first results were announced both parties stand for tightening austria's borders and toughening up on immigration and both leaders gave similar promises to deal with it to. avoid today is our chance to take over the reins in this country and make sure there's a real change in austria. when someone says the can be more of the same i'm saying
4:02 am
no we insist on a much needed and lasting change the big question for austria now is that what kind of coalition will be formed to make the next government policy reports s├ębastien kurds is likely to become in its transplant. staff as leader of the people's party has given no indication he will in fact form this coalition what he has said that he will talk with everyone all options are open now there are various scenarios of course being played out on the one hand you could have a coalition between the people's party and the social democrats this does seem highly unlikely because this has been dubbed the do it his campaign in austria is history and this is largely because these two large parties have been able charges of espionage and racial incitement against each other the supposed needs then the freedom party to form a coalition with sebastian that what it would mean is that you would have a white meaning government how this would be a huge blow to the european union it would also be a strong vote against in the book politics but it certainly would be constant also
4:03 am
of the same we see happening of course you it where more and more voters of those. i believe in the birth of the say we've got to be. who i think all of the arts is a. few how many european leaders have congratulated on his victory which makes it mean getting this kind of state the results my knowledge with the dictabelt cuts was able to capitalize on a couple of states which is it seems to be the migration issue ever since two thousand and fifteen when huge numbers of migrants pain still me wait to me and see that this has been a moving issue for the electorate here you know indeed house policy there will be
4:04 am
talk to the president of the austrian institute for european policy and security in vienna as well who believes that sebastian kunz is tough stance on immigration as paul was saying that one of the election he was responsible already for closing as we call it the western. can the route that lead from turkey. to germany and to scandinavia he was there one who organized that this route for illegal migrants became closed and since then. the number of migrants decreased very much and the ends of. here will not only be able but he proved already that he will be able to do something because this also was more or less the cornerstone of a politics that was overtaken also by european union and even by angela mackey even if she did not like this very much at the beginning. the toll
4:05 am
from somalia's worst ever terror attack still being counted today it's now no more than two hundred seventy have died and hundreds more injured in the twin blasts in that capital on saturday emergency workers are still pulling bodies from the ruins and they say the true number of casualties may never be known because of the intense heat generated by the initial truck blast. it's more feel things back from there but it's the bigger picture is not just
4:06 am
eastern africa suffering from the threat from extremists it's a problem occurring continent wide because of that then president trump has been increasing the u.s. presence there a great expense to american taxpayers as the girlfriend says and the other reports . you remember trump's america first tagline right well the u.s. tax dollars are currently being spent on a military intervention in africa one thousand five hundred troops are now stationed in the region so what are they fighting in africa terrorists ok and how's that going well apparently not all that well at least not in niger the growing foreign military footprint in the country appears to have set a local backlash against both the government and western countries and it gets worse for u.s. soldiers were killed as they tried to advance deeper into the african islamist territory niger by the way happens to be the country housing the largest contingent of u.s. troops in africa there were just
4:07 am
a hundred of them in two thousand and thirteen under obama administration but now with america first it's eight hundred u.s. troops so a pretty broad mission with the government of news year in order to increase their capability to stand alone and to prosecute lone extremists in the region and according to a white house document as of june this year there are now three hundred u.s. troops in cameroon that's an additional whole fifteen more troops since december twenty sixth seen now that's a serious increase that no doubt requires a serious budget right no way you may say but oh yes just this wednesday the acting assistant secretary for african affairs asked for five point two billion tax dollars as it's the required budget for african assistance in twenty eighteen ok but why so much money because of the size of africa because the time and space and the distances when it comes especially crisis response type activities we need access in various places on the continent five point two billion dollars that's
4:08 am
a lot of money for putting america first. the syrian army is clearing the remaining pockets of terrorists and there is all provinces other now rip. almost a voice over the city of may dean it had become the terror group's defacto capital of late have been largely deserted its former bastard and rocket artie's arabic channel got some rare access to see what life is like now it made dean many residents have fled before i still was finally driven out describing how they risked their lives escaping after losing everything to the islamist homes and belongings were seized during i saw brutal rule. guided alimony i was jailed for six days for smoking a cigarette a rest would be made if they even smelt tobacco they also had a so-called morality police known as the hizbollah if i shaved they would tell me for that. blows arrested twice because of the length of my beard they would torture
4:09 am
me cut me and feed me rotten on another occasion i was jailed for wearing trousers instead of the jalebi in their garments. similar stories are heard across syria to see the residents themselves fight back in some instances in the city of salah mia women there took up arms and followed their battalions efforts.
4:10 am
when i vented more. across the board i mean tom iraqi government forces have reportedly launched an operation against the kurdish held city of coke in the north the prime minister said his forces were to quote impose security the at midnight on sunday the moving in on oil fields held by the kurdish peshmerga forces the governor of called all residents to defend their lands tensions have spiked this since kurds voted for independence from iraq at the end of september. both sides to avoid escalations and says it supports
4:11 am
a unified iraq. well talking of unification or not next news on this one the president of catalonia it seems is refusing to clarify whether or not he's going to declare the region's independence from spain despite madrid's deadline now to stated case by this hour or potentially face direct role from madrid instead it seems this morning cattle and leaders written to the prime minister requesting dialogue and an end to what he calls the oppression of catalonia so today's deadline most is to stop the repression of the people and the government of catalonia our second request is to meet as soon as possible to come to an agreement i didn't do it as a demonstration of weakness but as an honest proposal to find a solution to the relationship between the spanish states and catalonia which has been tense for many years so about that right so ten days the deadline happening right now was imposed after the region conducted a disputed referendum
4:12 am
a fortnight ago in which the majority of voters returned that decided they wanted to break away here's how events have unfolded since then. all those years. rallies are being staged in the region to that song going what you saying here this one inch of road in the path and so it's all we can sowing so hundreds turn out there pushing for local leaders to make good on their promise to declare independence. all this not going down too well in the heart of europe the european
4:13 am
commission president warning earlier that if catalonia does break away it would set a troubling precedent. those cats alone you becomes independent others will do the same and i wouldn't like that i wouldn't like to see some ninety eight states in the european union it's difficult enough with twenty eight. to two for the british european parliament member nathan gill who says the e.u. only supports whatever's in its own interests i think it's been very disappointing the reaction from the e.u. especially. and what we've really seen here is the reality of these projects. if it pleases them they will accept independent spirit you know we saw in two thousand and eight when a kosovo declared unilateral independence. said that this was an illegal move but the e.u. wanted it to happen politically so they got behind it and the question made sure that it happened here they've said oh it's going to be too hard for us to control
4:14 am
and the e.u. with ninety eight or one hundred different governments you know that we have to work with the council of ministers and the council but quite frankly that is not a good enough reason when ultimately do you believe in the determination of people and the rights of people to decide their own determination for their own future. washington insists it's not giving up on diplomacy is the brinkmanship over north korea continues secretary of state rex tillerson told c.n.n. that he will continue negotiations until quote the first ball. he is made it clear to me to continue my diplomatic efforts which we are and we will can as i've told others all diplomatic efforts will continue until the first bomb drops so this is common comes amid rumors that his relationship with the president's taken a hit earlier this month trump tweeted that his chief envoy was wasting his time
4:15 am
trying to negotiate with north korea to listen though insists the trump supports his diplomatic maneuvers and is not pushing for war although the president has of course been repeatedly making it clear that a military option is on the table we are totally. second option totally destroying north korea that's called the military option by fury military action like the world has ever seen devastating. deficit devastating never see the rocket man. is on a suicide mission for himself rocket rockets all over the place suicide mission for him so he has been very aggressive should have been handled a long time that's called the military by fury it will be handled we handle everything thank you very much while the tough talk seems to be resonating resonating with this republican party of recent polls have forty six percent of
4:16 am
members support a preemptive strike on north korea while forty one percent were against it it was thought north korea too is planning another missile test maybe later this week in response to joint drills being conducted right now between the u.s. and south korea and right on topic as well i can tell you in today's edition of self in co here we hear expert opinion as to why a fresh approach might be needed over north korea now. now more than ever we have a big race for the start off a new arms race again i think we've reached a sanction since the problem started in this in the korean peninsula and despite incremental sanction north korea has gone from one tests i'm talk about nuclear tests to see is to test a year in two thousand and sixteen and then one the usual one that has gone beyond anything thinkable that they were able to do and it's what does it tell us i mean if you take
4:17 am
a layman on the street is telling your look the sanctions seem to not be working from a layman's perspective so if we incrementally pushing sanction and that sanctions seem to go incrementally with what north korea is doing i think we have to probably find a way in what often it's called in diplomacy quest of diplomacy where we have you know a way to put fresh but at the same time keep the door open for discussion and so that we move towards a solution that is sustainable and this is what we're hoping for beyond the words.
4:18 am
of one else seem wrong. but all wrong just don't call. me. yet to say pal it just didn't come out to. and in detroit equals betrayal. when so many find themselves worlds apart we choose to look for common ground. in case you're new to the game this is how. the economy is built around. washington washington. the. voters elected a businessman to run this country business. it's not business as usual it's business like it's never been done before.
4:19 am
i get my sort of positive news for a change the world festival of youth and students is underway in russia's black sea resort of sochi it's a week long cultural events expected to a truck over twenty thousand visitors from around the world people here are some highlights of last night's opening ceremony. well come to the nineteenth world festival of youth and students in sochi. i. came from jordan middle east from sri lanka we are from argentina a lot of countries here more than one hundred fifty countries a lot of cultures
4:20 am
a lot of people excited to meet a new people youngsters a great opportunity to come and meet as one to get to know you all around the world there's like a sense that the possibility of right a world a world with more social justice is impossible and here we can see that it isn't we can meet people from every country that can prove their experiences what they are doing in their countries and that's what we came to do and it's really great bridging the generation gap is one of the goals of the world youth festival so while money was there sixty years ago and it still works for us about george has been recalling the experience along with a new patrol and one of this year's participants. from greece i'm twenty five years old so we're going to meet george at his workplace what do you expect six years ago it was a. different war. george.
4:21 am
how old were you when the first of all how but when for what it. cost this is what . we're brothers yeah there's a difference of allegiance here what would you like to get into a time machine and see what that was like of course because first of all it believe it will serve the first in the. soviet union at. all people did not come in from the west because they were very wary and scared and the people from this side didn't have the money and in the end in the credentials to travel abroad the eyes of the soul within and russian people it's in moscow at that time were opened wide that is the first time they had actually seen foreigners and that the same on the part of the young participants through their eyes wide open they they had egged specter to see bears and all kinds of guns and things here in this country and that
4:22 am
there was nothing the people's generosity the courtesy of the warrantless of the people was something absolutely unexpected all of the participants boarded buses and trucks after that that main thoroughfare was called. prospect meta which means of a new avenue of peace and all along the route all the streets were lined i think we can see some pictures of that do you recognize this place george of course i wasn't trying to what they really and we're not going to do anything young people it seems like almost all the most cool down the street and actually i don't know if anyone ever estimated the number of must wait who came out of treats but i think what do you get into into millions what did they do with the security police at that time. all the people to stand on the sidewalks but that failed how did was communicate because they didn't know the language you didn't have to know the language of
4:23 am
course there are interpreters but. when there is friendship in your eyes in your heart you're really don't need an entrepreneur courses do you recognize this building i actually do i don't i don't call the tchaikovsky concert hall so if it says festival here that means probably some of the events happened then saw exactly exactly why it was whited song and dance and sampled groups and they must have played music right oh yeah music with music filled the streets all of moscow all along the route i don't. know at least each. other and. how many trucks were there george i'll tell you one thing try to figure it out yourself how many buses and trucks were required to carry to transport thirty four thousand youngsters young people from the age of moscow into the center
4:24 am
to the stadium here are like saudi arabia and i recognize costa do you think you can ask george for any advice. in their festival that you're going to be lucky. you're going to be in my shoes sixty years hence ok great there's only thing one thing i am sorry about that i'm not twenty five years old again share your experiences with other peoples sheria share of what you good. don't bite each other . we had enough of that at the end weekend that. i just need this to write nine unforgettable you have the days. seem to. be asking for disease in. the spirit you get a biggie i deem the end of now you know what the. next story for this morning the classic novel to kill
4:25 am
a mockingbird has been removed from one school reading list in the u.s. state of mississippi authorities there say harper lee's book contains language which quote makes people uncomfortable there were complaints about it there is some language in the book that makes people uncomfortable and we can teach the same lesson with other books while the novels about racial injustice of course it revolves around a lawyer defending a black man accused of raping a white woman it was awarded a pulitzer prize in its film version one three academy awards to kill a mockingbird looms so large in sort of american psyche i think. there's just it's hard to ignore to me her legacy should be one of brilliant writing tolerance and to kill a mockingbird guess especially a man with. racial not turmoil but the tension that is so. prevalent in our world has become black lights matter more than what's happening in
4:26 am
ferguson and what's happening in flint right now reading it as an adult in that context was really fascinating to me book speaking removed from other school programs to last year in virginia it was pulled along with mark twain's the adventures of huckleberry finn of the complaints about the use of the n. word legal commentator horace cooper things to such steps show the rewriting though of american history. we are not open to allowing the ideas that authors contribute being given the opportunity to be exposed to our young people or to any kind of an academic that is dangerous for society our young people are the most in need of understanding the benefit of hearing from varying ideas that they may not know about and that they need to be exposed to we shouldn't be so willing to just kicked to the curb the authors of their writings because of
4:27 am
some things about them that remind us of the past that we're not happy about this is a bad idea there isn't much difference between pulling statues down our burning books are just essentially rewriting history. food for thought i'll leave you with. us here in moscow our programs continue to after the break. still exist. rico's treated as one. of. the islanders controlled by the u.s.
4:28 am
government and some puerto ricans crave independence. either way. still many do wish to join the u.s. hundreds more leave every day. with the country at a crossroads anger on the island is on the rise. my . goal. was a bit of cut a lot of b.s.

a much needed and lasting change so the big question now for australia is what kind of coalition will be formed to make the next government as paul asli has been following up sebastian kurtz is likely to become an extensive will stay on as leader of the people's party and has given no indication to think well in fact in this coalition where he has said that he will talk with everyone all options are open now there are various scenarios of course being played out on the one hand you could have a coalition between the people's party and the social democrats this does seem highly unlikely because this has been dubbed the do it is campaign in australia's history and this is largely because these two large parties have labelled charges of espionage and racial incitement against each other that they support leaves then the freedom party to form a coalition with s├ębastien is that what it would mean is that you would have a white meaning government now this would be a huge blow to the european union it would also be a strong vote against in the book politics but it certainly would be constant also
5:03 am
of the same you see happening of course you are. we have more and more both of those by either with. was i believe the force a review of it did you see that both her words were oh yes this is a. good look now many european leaders had of course a way to congratulate kurtz he will become europe's youngest and leader and i think talking to people here on the street they will succeed that these election results were predicted they certainly match the polls my thinking behind it so well well it's always the same. but nothing of a problem with the refugees of course and best of the main reason for the growing right here there's a lot problems no problems with immigration this. service
5:04 am
or effort g.'s and many people frayed the debate about the refugee issue was very in was over presented in that action campaign. because it's it's some people and i would say maybe half of talk in the election campaign was was about the right to things so. yeah but definitely it was something where the right wing parties gained a lot of heat gained lots of votes and seems so well we talked to the president of the austrian institute for european policy and security of vienna who believes that sebastian kunz is tough stance on immigration that indeed won him that election he was responsible already for closing as we call it to western balkan the route that led from turkey. up to germany and to scandinavia he was there one who organized
5:05 am
that this route for illegal my. parents became closed and since then. the number of migrants decreased very much and the ends of. here will not only be able but he proved already that he will be able to do something because this solves all was more or less to cornerstone of a politics that was overtaken also by european union and even by bacteria even if she did not like this very much at the beginning. the toll from somalia's worst ever terror attack is still being counted this lunchtime it's now known in fact that more than three hundred have died and hundreds more have been injured in twin blasts in the capital on saturday mergence the workers are still pulling bodies from the ruins and say that the true number of casualties may never be know because of the intense heat generated by the initial.
5:06 am
it's more devastation that well the bigger picture is not just eastern africa suffering from the threat of extremists it's a problem occurring continent wide and because of that president trump has been increasing the u.s. presence at great expense to american taxpayers as miguel francis santiago reports next year member trumps america first tagline right well the u.s. tax dollars are currently being spent on
5:07 am
a military intervention in africa one thousand five. the troops are now stationed in the region so what are they fighting in africa terrorists ok and how's that going well apparently not all that well at least not in niger the growing foreign military footprint in the country appears to have a local backlash against both the government and western countries and it gets worse for u.s. soldiers were killed as they tried to advance deeper into the african islamist territory niger by the way happens to be the country housing the largest contingent of u.s. troops in africa there were just a hundred of them in two thousand and thirteen under obama administration but now with american first it's eight hundred u.s. troops so a pretty broad mission with the government of new year in order to increase their capability to stand alone and to prosecute lone extremists in the region and according to a white house document as of june this year there are now three hundred u.s. troops in cameroon that's an additional whole fifteen more troops since december
5:08 am
twenty sixth team now that's a serious increase that no doubt requires a serious budget right no way you may say but oh yes just this wednesday the acting assistant secretary for african affairs asked for five point two billion tax dollars as it's the required budget for african assistance in twenty eighteen ok but why so much money because of the size of africa because the time and space and the distances when it comes especially crisis response type activities we need access in various places on the continent five point two billion dollars that's a lot of money for putting america first. the syrian army is clearing the remaining pockets of terrorists and their is all provinces have repelled most of all you saw from the city of my deed it had become the terror group's defacto capital of late having largely deserted his former busted and rocket parties on
5:09 am
a big channel got rare access to see what life is like now. many residents have fled before i suppose finally driven out describing how they risked their lives everything to the islamists homes and belongings were seized during isis brutal rule up. i was jailed for six days for smoking a cigarette a rest would be made if they even smelt tobacco they also had a so-called morality police known as the his would if i shaved my head for that. rested twice because of the length of my beard they would torture me cut me up and feed me rotten. on another occasion i was jailed for wearing trousers instead of the jalapeno their garments with similar stories are heard across syria in fact has seen residents themselves fight back in some cases one such case in the city of selami women the t.v. followed the efforts.
5:10 am
on the fly. had by many made it. out of your need so when i've been to the model been in this elimimian came because he did his own.
5:11 am
meantime across the border iraqi government forces have reportedly launched an operation against the kurdish held city cook up in the north the prime minister said his forces what a quote impose security there at midnight sunday the army began moving in on oil fields an airbase held by kurdish peshmerga forces the governor called on residents to come out and defend their lands tensions a spike there since kurds voted for independence from iraq at the end of september for its part washington a surge to both sides to avoid escalation singh says it supports a unified iraq. talking of unification or not as the case may be let's focus on catalonia next the president of catalonia now refusing today to clarify whether or not he's going to declare the region's independence it's a developing story right now despite madrid's deadline right now to state its case by this hour or potentially face direct rule from madrid instead it seems the
5:12 am
kaplan leaders written to the prime minister requesting more dialogue and an end to what he calls the oppression of catalonia our first request is to stop the repression of the people and the government of catalonia our second request is to meet as soon as possible to come to an agreement i didn't do it as a demonstration of weakness but as an honest proposal to find a solution to the relationship between the spanish streets and catalonia which has been tense for many years. monday's deadline was imposed after the region conducted a disputed referendum a fortnight ago in which the majority of voters who did turn out decided that they did want to break away is a quick recap of how events have unfolded since then. i . told us last year as
5:13 am
well i said to people that we should be absolutely assured that the government is going to block any independence declaration that might be expressed in this agreed with the law but you cannot disobey the law if you disobey the law you become an album. because none of the spot going down well in the center of europe there the european commission president earlier warned that if catalonia does break away it would set a troubling precedent thus. becomes independent others do the same i wouldn't like that and i would like to see some ninety eight states in the european union it's difficult enough for twenty eight. thoughts two from british european parliament member nathan gill who says the e.u.
5:14 am
only supports whatever's in his own interests. i think it's been very disappointing the reaction from the e.u. especially. and what we've really seen here is the reality of these projects. if it pleases them they will accept independence but it's you know we saw in two thousand and eight when kosovo declared unilateral independence serbia said that this was an illegal move but the e.u. wanted it to happen politically so they got behind in the push that made sure but it happened here they've said oh it's going to be too hard for us to control and you with ninety eight hundred different governments you know that we have to work with the council of ministers and the council but quite frankly that is not a good enough reason when ultimately do you believe in the determination of people and the rights of people to decide their own determination for their own future.
5:15 am
the more this monday's headlines washington insists is not giving up on diplomacy is the brinkmanship over north korea continues secretary of state rex tillerson told c.n.n. that he'll continue negotiations until quote the first ball. made it clear to me to continue my diplomatic efforts which we are and we will can as i've told others as diplomatic efforts will continue until the first bomb drops citizens comments come amid rumors that his relationship with the president's taken a hit of late earlier this month trump tweeted that his chief envoy was wasting his time trying to negotiate with north korea to listen insists though that trump supports his diplomatic maneuvers and he's not pushing for war although course the president has been repeatedly making it clear that a military option is on the table we are totally prepared for the second option totally destroying north korea that's called the military option by fury military action like the world has never see devastating. devastating stating ever see
5:16 am
the rocket man. is on a suicide mission for himself rocket and shooting rockets all over the place suicide mission for him so he has been very aggressive should have been handled a long time it's called the military by fury it will be here. we handle everything thank you very much for all the rhetoric in the tough talk from trump it seems to be resonating with the republican party in fact recent poll out said forty six percent of members support a preemptive strike on north korea while forty one percent are against it it's thought north korea though is planning another missile test maybe even later on this week in response to joint drills currently being conducted between the u.s. and south korea and that right hold on topic i can tell you two just bit later this hour in a couple of minutes often co will be along on this channel here expert opinion as to why a fresh approach now might be needed over north korea. now more than ever we have
5:17 am
a big race for the start of a new arms race again i think we've reached a sanction since the problem started and in the korean peninsula and despite incremental sanction north korea has gone from one tests i'm talk about nuclear tests to see years to test a year in two thousand and sixteen and then one the usual one that has gone beyond anything thinkable that they were able to do and it's what does it tell us i mean if you take a layman on the street is telling your look the sanctions seem to not be working from a layman perspective so if we incrementally pushing sanction and that sanctions seem to go incrementally with what north korea is doing i think we have to probably fund a way in what often it's called in diplomacy quest of diplomacy where we have you know a way to put fresh air but at the same town keep the door open for discussion and
5:18 am
so that we move towards a solution that is sustainable and this is what we're hoping for beyond words.
5:19 am
you. know no. there are guys. in story new in american news outlets operating in russia will have to register as foreign agents if he is forced to do the same in the u.s. that's just in from the foreign minister sergei lavrov who says our channel is being targeted for its work. in the next hour on the march pressure to register as
5:20 am
a foreign agent in the united states but if such an unlawful demand against the mass media outlets are put into practice we'll have to retaliate applying the same restrictions in american outlets that separates in russia but it was first against those which are being financed with taxpayers' money so it seems at least at the moment three american outlets fall into the category outlined by the foreign minister last week the russian justice ministry said the notices about possible restrictions as for the requirements facing us are they could include disclosing the personal details of stuff and supplying transcripts of interviews this channel featured heavily in a u.s. intelligence report on alleged meddling in last year's presidential election and indeed was described as a tool of perceived russian influence more recently artie's marketing on twitter was equated with disruptive online bots and trolls so clever of comments were made that the world festival of youth and students is light enough of it which is taking
5:21 am
place in the russian black sea resort of sochi big event week long cultural event expected to attract over two hundred twenty thousand visitors run the world here are some of the highlights of the opening ceremony grand event it was. well come to the nineteenth the world's best of all of youth and students in the sochi. games from middle east from sri lanka yeah from legendary a lot of countries as you more than one hundred fifty countries a lot of cultures a lot of people excited to meet the new people youngsters a great opportunity to meet as one to get to know you all around the world there's like a sense that the possibility of right a world of well with more. social justice is impossible and here we can see that it
5:22 am
isn't we can meet people from every country that can prove their experiences what they are doing in their countries and that's what we came to learn it's really great bridging the generation gap is one of the goals of the world youth first of all great story next one man who was there sixty years ago indeed still works for us our george will. has been recalling the experience along with correspondent and one of this year's participants and there's a mix. hi i'm cost us i'm from greece i'm twenty five yes all so we're going to meet george at his workplace what do you expect sixty years ago it was directly from the war come and. help a lot of us and george bush i am glad to see. how old were you when the festival happened went on one of us and it cost us just one ok we are brothers yes there's
5:23 am
a difference of only sixty eight but what costs us would you like to get into a time machine and see what that was like of course because first of all i believe it was the first thing the meeting and some of the union at all people did not come in from the west because they were very wary and scared and the people from this side didn't have the money and in the end the credentials to travel abroad the eyes of the soul within russian people in moscow at that time were opened wide in their view this is the first time they had actually seen foreigners and the same on the part of the young participants through their eyes wide open they they had egged suspected to see bears and all kinds of guns and things here in this country and it was nothing the people's generosity the courtesy of the warmth and so the people were something absolutely unexpected all the participants boarded buses and trucks after that that main thoroughfare was called. prospect meta which
5:24 am
means of a new avenue of peace and all along the route all the streets were lined i think we can see some pictures of that do you recognize this place george of course i wasn't trying to what they really and we're not going to do anything young people it seems like almost all the most school districts and actually i don't know if anyone ever estimated the number of months going to came out of three but i think what do you get into into millions what did they do with the security police at that time. all the people to stand on the sidewalks but that failed how did was communicate because they didn't know the language it did they didn't have to know the language of course they were interpreters but. when there's friendship in your eyes and your heart your we don't need an entrepreneur courses do you recognize this building i actually do i don't i don't call this the tchaikovsky concert hall so if it says
5:25 am
festival here that means probably some of the events happened inside you that play then play why it was lighted song and dance and sampled groups and they must have played music right oh yeah music with music filled the streets all of moscow all along the route i don't. care. how many trucks were there george i'll tell you one thing try to figure it out yourself how many buses and trucks were required to carry to transport thirty four thousand the youngsters young people from the age of moscow into the center to the stadium you see is trailing here like saudi arabia and iran going ice classes do you think you can ask george for any advice. in their festival and you're going to be lucky. you're going to be in my shoes sixty years hence ok great there's only
5:26 am
thing one thing i am sorry about that i'm not twenty five years old again share your experiences with other peoples sheria share of what you good not. don't bite each other we had enough of that at the end weekend that. followed usually misty right now unforgettable your for you had the days yeah wild i think dowsing songs be used if it isn't immediately then move on to the spoon a few cymbal you get a biggie i do me and i've been down that path no good. but some more sober matters more than a dozen pharmaceutical firms are being taken to courts in the us state of michigan over marketing which accuses say is worsening people's opiate addiction the industry has taken a page out of big tobacco use playbook they utilize misleading information
5:27 am
marketing campaigns and studies to convince the public that their product was safe we believe that the human cost in the financial cost to the counties is significant we think that some compensation is necessary for bad behavior in all over one hundred thousand people in the u.s. died from overdosing on prescription opioids between one thousand nine hundred nine and twenty fifty last year alone there were eight hundred seventeen drug related deaths of michigan's wayne county that's a sixty one percent increase from the year before all deaths in oakland county increased more than two hundred percent in recent years one opioid pain medication is called ox a code used to treat moderate to severe discomfort now this thing is highly addictive and it's got the same potential as morphine the docs say abuse along with misuse can lead to fatal overdoses. produce has made billions of dollars by fueling washington's epidemic these drug companies knew that what they were saying
5:28 am
was wrong. morgenstein you all you know you were doing well we've been in touch with the drug firms some of them here t.v. industries got but they made it clear that they closely comply with all current federal and state regulations they say when it comes to medications in question we also got a response to from per do farm they deny all the allegations they say they're looking for defending their position a former spokesman for the white house national drug policy office spoke to us and thinks it's the combined fault though of not only the companies but also the doctors who overprescribe. the companies have contributed a lot in terms of deception in terms of letting people think that these are only pain killers when they are addiction producers but it's not only on the marketers it's not only on the companies it's also on the doctors the doctors have overprescribed in many cases about a quarter of the usage of opiates abuse and deaths are
5:29 am
because doctors have overprescribed and not paid any attention to where the drugs are going so a lot has to be done there but you know this isn't just a doctor's problem it isn't just a marketing problem it isn't just a manufacturers problem it's a national production problem and a worldwide production problem compared to mid thirty's thirty of moscow thanks for watching i'm kevin know it. we all willingly accepted the risk of being shot wounded taken prisoner but noone signed up to be poisoned by our own people that was nuclear biological and chemical products the said do not own the truck tires all types of styrofoam all polystyrene
5:30 am
batteries trucks there was a complete denial i think at all levels of government that there was any connection between berm pits and what these brave soldiers were suffering from to compensate every soldier marine airman and sailor that was on the ground that are complaining about illnesses from exposure from the berm pits would really literally send a be a growth and they don't want to pay it so they're waiting decades a lot of those soldiers will die in time and they will have to pay. colegrove to get the middle finger the movie is the loosely. delayed to be the. same wrong. but old roles just don't hold. any old belief yet to shape
5:31 am
out disdained you can stick out to go and engage with equals betrayal. when so many find themselves worlds apart we choose to look for common ground. maybe you'll say. oh. no no no. they're going to.
5:32 am
blow up i'm just so can kill i'm sophie shevardnadze as we move deeper into a nuclear crisis on the korean peninsula other voices calling for total prohibit nukes bring louder. but can't humanity really give up nuclear weapons well i ask less seen as irbil executive secretary of the comprehensive nuclear test ban treaty organization and participant of deval di discussion. as the world is gripped by the saber rattling crisis in north korea over its missile tests the ghost of nuclear wars bringing the idea of nonproliferation and nuclear c. wrote to the forefront again with the treaty banning the weapons fall together in the nuclear free world ever become reality or the lack of a way to deter and make the world a more dangerous place than it is now and is there any other way to control the
5:33 am
dangers of nuclear weapons. doesn't deserve a welcome to the show it's great to have you on our program so president trump has recently reached a rate that only one thing will work with north korea hinting at a military option and we've heard this many times before from u.s. officials as it just tough talking or is a preemptive strike really on the cards. first of all thank you for for having us on to do we view. what i've often said is a time of you know high tensions sometimes words go beyond thoughts i'm just hoping that this is the case right now and that if anything would be done to give the all stakeholders within the international community failed to find the solution in the problem the issue in the deep. but why do you think that
5:34 am
united states has. attempted and attempts to force planning on into something by fear i mean this guy's done to be don't seem to be easily scared at all. i mean we've nuclear weapon on the possibility of war i mean it's always scary i mean from the civil society view and inform the international community as what. the tory that goes towards this can be scaled and escape in fact but as i say once again my hope is that you know we live in difficult periods tensions pretty high and difficult moments and work sometimes goes beyond our thoughts and then i'm hoping that things would settle it one way or another and that's what we all are trying to push for you know we're all hoping things will settle but we have u.s. army chief of staff general mark milley who took it one further and he's saying
5:35 am
that north korea issue has a deadline that decisions will be made soon what does that mean i mean this is saying that we're actually heading towards or about how much time do we have here. no i think i'm just my hope is that things so far have been. set of straw the united mission framework and the security council i think the security council has gone beyond the words that we hearing and then always fun solution to the problem in the deep it is true that there is no definite solution but if we must to get the d.p. to stop testing i mean all kind of tests i mean both nuclear testing and then missile testing i think that's going to be a good start to a solution in the region so international community has urged north korea many times before to stop its nuclear tests but it doesn't really seem to bow to
5:36 am
pressure neither u.n. resolutions door sanctions work in your opinion i mean what else can be done to make p.r. non stop their nuclear tests. and. i mean that's a question that comes often to say you know what is the solution to the. two people in young problems. we've gone i think we've reached a sanction since the problem started in the in the korean peninsula and despite incremental sanction north korea has gone from one test i'm talk about a nuclear test to see is to test a year in two thousand and sixteen and then one huge one that has gone beyond anything thinkable that they were able to do and it's what does it tells i mean if you take a layman on the street is telling you look ascension seems to not be working from
5:37 am
a layman perspective so if we incrementally pushing sanction and that sanctions seem to go incrementally with what north korea is doing i think we have to probably fund a way in what often it's called in diplomacy quest of diplomacy where we have you know. a way to put fresh air but at the same to keep the door open for discussion and so that we move towards a solution that is sustainable and this is what we're hoping for beyond words so some experts they believe an underground test would be above ground test would be a logical step for north korea to prove success of their nuclear program either is believed wouldn't go for it to the risks what is your take on that. i hope we won't go far enough once for the tests i mean you have to remember that it's the past the history of nuclear tests explodes in india. of bush the done
5:38 am
window in the united states in nevada and beyond that to ask for a stop and a comprehensive test ban treaty from the limit to test ban treaty moving from atmospheric tests to underground testing but then came the city b.t.o. in one thousand nine to six the treaty to a comprehensive test whereby there's no test in the underground or under water so it is my hope and i'm glad you mentioning this that we push towards a comprehensive test ban treaty it's utter into force so that there is no room for testing the india or underground we talk about underground testing we shouldn't take it as something that is acceptable and the most that it takes will be the red light i think every test today is a red line and the red line is we have to get the streets into force so that we leave no room for underground or atmospheric tests or underwater testing and that's
5:39 am
what we're pushing for and that's why we have to finish what we started which is finishing the city beauty by getting his entree into force a soon as possible so you have posted a motion graphic on twitter which actually shows a simulation of the aftermath of a potential test over the pacific some years are found this video chilling some misleading could you give me am more detailed idea of the consequences of such a tast. yes you are right i did pour some treats a simulation of a possible tests india have that was in response of the request of many journalists and experts who were asking us should we have today and that was fairly tess what would be the consequences what we did we basically simulate the weather forecasts how the nuts want to fix tests could be taken and the isotope be moved with weather
5:40 am
and condition and be spread around same as we did for fukushima when we had difficulty my accident in two thousand and eleven it's the same thing the same type of simulation we put together it is two of that it does cause some concern because we get back people say but this is this is scary i mean there's norse things carry on this map this map was just an indication on how things can be transported with weather condition around the planet and that's what we did and that's what we put forward in the for the international committee of you know a layman to be able to see as well to being a way to move forward this day in communication so for well that the consequences of the test can tell me they get the consequences. i mean consequence of an atmospheric test will be certainly more damaging than what we've never seen so far with underground testing undergone tests and we talk about you
5:41 am
know joe logical stress and induce quick that might up and in the event of cracking in the ground that could lead seeps through some radio isotope they come in very minimal quantity or minimal level but if you talk about a loss for the tests you just have to go to kazakhstan and then see what the consequences could be have been to sydney politics and the consequences can be and often very damaging because you talk about and that's one of the. most that it tests and then condition that in the head and in affecting the vitamin more than if they were in the gulf not that i'm justifying that we should do tests on the ground i'm just saying that the consequence in the head for the environment more damaging than what would come on the ground. in the us is to stanchest opponent of north korea's nuclear tests yet it has never ratified the comprehensive nuclear test ban treaty how much credibility does the us hold one it six to prevent others from
5:42 am
nuclear testing. it is true you talk about the u.s. not having about a five to comprehensive test ban treaty i mean this is where often called. democracy i mean that's that's the side of democracy that people should take forward i mean a leader can be willing to consider the city bt that if the kitchen but if he doesn't want the number it doesn't have the numbers of senate or of the parliament it's difficult for him to pursue his policy as he wishes so this is a situation in the united states having said this the united said does contribute tremendously to the comprehensive test ban treaty for they've completed that international monitoring system facility on the territory i think there are one or two remaining and we're working towards that and a participating in the technical work of the comprehensive test ban treaty it is my hope that the condition putting the united states into saying that anything that
5:43 am
contributes to the national security that by in i'm yet to prove that the c t b t is indeed contributing to u.s. national security and i think if we must to do that as we trying of best would put the united states in the condition of artificial of the compliance of test of treaty so yes ratification on the tray would most likely set a good example for other states including china even iran if those countries join us security will benefit so why aren't they americans ratifying this treaty. why the eighth remaining country are not to ratify the treaty i think it's not a million dollar question but i mean it's a question and the nonsense that i get some time from school kids i mean kids are telling me often but mr isabelle why don't you bring bring them into a room and then get them to the to fire all at the same time and then unsaid to this question is often because we tell them. you know they hear from the civil
5:44 am
society or from reading that u.s. or china is waiting from us isabel is waiting from iran and iran is waiting and so and so forth so what they're. of people who are clear mind this in look bring them all in one room and then get them to sign at the same time so there won't be a problem of what up to five first and who doesn't it so i mean that's probably an idealistic scenario but having said this often said that we have eight countries that all of the responsibility for that to find a city bt and then they should go for it there's no eight hundred pound gorilla or one hundred fifty pound gorilla that eight countries that ratification is necessary for entry into force of this treaty and we're working closely or i would say pretty closely with some of them and we wish to do with all of them to get this written to force the soonest that we leave no room for nuclear testing. all right we're going
5:45 am
to take a short break right now in lower back we'll continue discussing international nonproliferation efforts stay with us. still exist. rico's treated as one. hundred three cool. little k'naan you well want to see doesn't make. the island is controlled by the u.s. government and some puerto ricans crave independence. either but i mean to sort of i mean we're thinking again. still
5:46 am
many do wish to join the u.s. hundreds more leave every day knowing. i'm a long way from mania. beings. with the country at a crossroads anger on the island is on the rise. in case you're new to the game this is how it works in the economy is built around corporations corporations run washington the washington post media the. voters elect the businessman to run this country business because. you must it's not business as usual it's business like it's never been done before.
5:47 am
we're back with less state as are books secretary secretary of the comprehensive nuclear test ban treaty organization discussing nuclear weapons and their role in the world today so the trump white house wants to disavow and toughen up the iran deal which actually helped tolt tehran's nuclear weapons program if it does it what would that mean for nonproliferation. the iran do. was one of the. few if i can put it this way agreement for nearly a decade in nonproliferation or arms control. it is my hope
5:48 am
that everything will be gone by doors to call does work key in that agreement to find a way to pursue it to give the confidence necessary in the international community to move on with other treaty like to see to be see the f.m.c. see in the arms control that seek to establish the peaceful environment that this world needs today and that is my hope and. i'm positive that you know that or was solution to be find two issues and then i think the same way it concluded this deal the same way they can find ways to continue it the best way for the international community and or parties to our nuclear weapons to only insurance that countries like north korea or iran can count on for the safety of their regimes against intervention what can be more solid than
5:49 am
a new. i hope that nuclear weapon are not the only assurance for countries as you you're asking i think what could be more assuring it's the conducive environment that one could create for people to feel at ease that their security and their national security is not threatened by their neighbors or the international community how do we do that i think that's why multilateral diplomacy exists and that's why we have reason and framework you know asian framework. western framework african framework and then you name it i think we need multilateral and regional diplomacy to be able to put the countries in the position where they feel comfortable that there is no threats by all means next to them or coming from far and that's what we need and that's why we have multilateral diplomacy for. ten years and they were ok with india and
5:50 am
pakistan having nuclear weapons right why not north korea why not just admit it and move on with that. i mean why not admitted the north korea's nuclear weapon like india and pakistan and move on with it i think you are asking a pretty difficult question but i mean my answer to that would be. for nonproliferation and we aiming for design money in the end we cannot in the framework of the nonproliferation treaty consider more countries that are coming today with nuclear weapon and the risk that we have in that others will see if this country has managed to do it under this kind of framework why not me and who wants that what we want is to put an end to nuclear testing and then to move towards a world free of nuclear weapons and to do that we have to bring countries who seek
5:51 am
or who of this ambition to understand that the national security doesn't depend on the possession of nuclear weapons and i just want to say if you take a toddler the toddler would want to sit walk sit crawl before he walks if he walks because at crawling it would not have solid legs to work in a sustainable fashion and putting the movement towards a world without nuclear weapons on the same way we need solid ground that include down through into force of the comprehensive test ban treaty and it legally binding one so will be creating the conditions that are ripe for a world without nuclear weapon scimitar doctrines of corporal powerhouses depend on having nuclear arsenals policies are made based on having nuclear arsenals nukes provide checks and balances in global politics weren't lowing them and getting gray of them bring more instability make politics a predictable. if. you ask
5:52 am
somebody from time a little country. somebody that would not say that having nuclear weapons bring stability because i don't think that some reason where that is nor nuclear weapon then no nuclear weapon are not stable because that is weapon or stable because they aren't a weapon i think we're moving towards bringing peace and stability for this world for displaying that and bringing peace and stability is about also stopping anything that leads to a. you know race and then achieve design movement and that's what we want and that's what we're working towards and working towards this the international community has been for treaties like the comprehensive test ban treaty the f.m. city dificid months in a kind of treaty and many other treaties that's come together as we move towards
5:53 am
achieving this world that we dreaming for and dreaming dreaming for a world without nuclear weapons and i'm hoping that we'll achieve this in our lifetime and people would not see nuclear weapon as a means for stability by any means so i think that we have the opportunity to do that because now more than ever we have a big risk for the start of a new arms race again so the nobel prize winners managed to push a treaty on their profit bishan on the nuclear weapons in the un but not the nuclear club members backed it with the us calling the initiative unfit for today's security situation and russia calling it dangerous with that the signature self they have no way is this treaty powerless and then what's the point of it. i would just say you talk about the nuclear the nobel prize
5:54 am
a freak i would try and courts what exactly the nobel committee said this is the awarded this nobel prize knowing that it will not achieve the stopping nuclear weapon today but it's a message that they wanted to send to the international community but beyond the messes what we want is to crack the code design them and the practical design one takes into account control treaties that are here the comprehensive test ban treaty being one of them have used the example off the top i think we have to finish what we started one of the things we started more than twenty years ago is a comprehensive test ban treaty its session all hanging fruit if you come how the world free from nuclear testing how can you achieve a world free from nuclear weapons north korea cannot be testing still and then we talking about the world free from nuclear weapons north korea like any other
5:55 am
countries its only country that is testing today that must stop this stop nuclear testing stop missile testing and then create the conditions for the international community to see them are spotless and the house we can move towards a world free without the free from nuclear weapons and that's what we seek and that's what we want to achieve so just a comprehensive ban on nuclear tests as well as state nonproliferation make this new here and try mission training redundant i mean we already have a structure in place that controls nuclear weapons resident reasonably well. i mean when the prohibition. on nuclear weapon makes. gives a redundancy to the city bt and bt. i wouldn't tick one versus the other. i think what we hear from civil society and from the proponent of the prohibition of
5:56 am
nuclear weapon is the perceived frustration that i've seen in what this does nor movement towards design a month but a precisely movement towards dissolve money includes into force of the comprehensive test ban treaty to create the condition of trust that business is city for countries to come together and then discuss how they can effectively and practically achieve disarmament and this is important when i use the toddler's example i think it might look a little bit funny but i mean the reality is to have something sustainable we have to prepare the ground for it and to prepare the ground for an effective and practical design a month we need to achieve down through into force of the comprehensive test ban treaty and bring many of the arms control treaty that are pending life if we bring them live we cleared the condition but we have to move on them because if you don't move on down through into force of the comprehensive test ban treaty you effectively give the perception that nothing is moving towards nonproliferation and
5:57 am
design and that's a risk and that's really what we facing today and this is why i still have to finish what we started the comprehensive test ban treaty is a loss on the routes in the uk much brightnesses or both thank you very much for being with us today we were talking to you last seen as or about executive secretary of the comprehensive nuclear test ban treaty organization at participant of the valdai discussion club about the nuclear crisis on the korean peninsula and whether a world without new is actually possible that's it for at this latest edition of sophie and co i will see you next time on. please.
